I recently read a great book that I think everyone should read, "Green Hell" by Steven Milloy.
It was amazing, I couldn't put it down. He lists the ways environmentalists are trying to take away your civil liberties. For example, CA trying to regulate your thermostats from the electric company. In OR, they are working on a plan to tax you per mile you drive by installing a machine in your car that says where you go and how many miles you drive. Others have called for a personal carbon tax- think cap-and-trade but for individuals-that will allot you so many carbon credits to use each year and you must pay to use more. Thinking of going to Hawaii for family vacation? Forget it- it would use your entire years worth of carbon credits.
Everyone should read this book!
